As a teacher, this story is perfect to discuss autism and differences in general. There are many parents of childen with autism that need to hear Temple's story. Sadly, many parents that I meet see autism as a negative condition that will keep their child from suceeding in life. I'll be happy to spread Temple's life story as an example of what nurture, experiences, and support can do for children! Dr. Grandin's story is quite inspirational and I imagine is especially inspiring to people with autism. We can all learn from her determination, compassion, and strength. The author, Julia Finley Mosca uses wonderful rhyme to tell the story. She also shares fun facts, a timeline, and more detailed information about Dr. Grandin's life and accomplishments. The illustrations are unique and well done, as well.
I received an advance copy for review.

I just heard this book read in our classroom today and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Having read some of Temple's other books and following her a bit through media, I was especially impressed with how accurately the story of Temple's life is told. It's a simple rhyming book but catches some of the most significant aspects of Temple's life: that she presented as unique from the beginning, that she was persecuted from a young age because of her differences, how she moved forward developing her strengths despite hurdles, and how she continues to make huge, necessary contributions to our world today. I found it to be a motivating book that dispels several myths about autistic individuals and inspires others to be their best, while letting their uniqueness shine. I'm getting a copy.
